Synthesis report on how developing countries are addressing hazards, focusing on relevant lessons learned and good practices

This report identifies actions, within and taken by developing countries, in response to climate hazards that lead to enhancement of adaptive capacity, strengthening resilience, and a reduction in vulnerability. It is based on a review of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), National Communications, other relevant (workshop) reports including reports of the Technical Examination Process on Adaptation (TEP‐A), the AC, the LEG, and reports prepared under the Nairobi Work Programme. In addition to the reports, literature is consulted, where appropriate, including to extract examples for improved understanding of the developing countries’ adaptation reports. So far, 89 NDCs of developing countries and 18 NAPs, submitted to the UNFCCC, have been reviewed.
